This infuriates me.
Not because that the family practices polygamy or that they have interpreted religious scripture wrongly, but it’s the fact that these women (and possibly) men are duped into the idea that only good wives give good sex, and if a good wife can give good sex, the husband won’t stray and it’ll be a happy, harmonious relationship.
The Prophet Muhammad took in three other wives alongside his first because the other three women were invalid or widowed; the Islamic nations were at war and said women lost their husbands, and therefore, lost any means, especially financially, to survive on their own. He did it to protect and provide for them, not because he had a raging boner that cannot be calmed by one woman.
No. No. No. No.
You want to take four wives and have 23 children? I’m not going to judge you, who am I to say what can or cannot make another person happy?
But I am deeply embarrassed that these people still do not understand that sex is merely just a bonus of a loving and healthy relationship. Marriage, and really, any relationship, is built on trust, love, security, understanding and support of one another. If your significant other is too sick/tired/pregnant to have some sexy times, try to be understanding, but do not start beating on her or complaining that you’re unfulfilled because her biological needs outweighed yours that one night.
I need to spread this on Tumblr. We need to shut this club down somehow :< Deviant teachings don’t even cover it, it should be a crime against humanity to revert women to sex objects and men objectified as raging sex beasts.
It’s sad that there still remains some certain groups of people who would prefer to remain stranded in primitive, outdated ideas and concepts while the world is progressing and changing. I really don’t see how their mentality benefits anyone in their biological gender group. Misguided, probably, to believe that their opinions are beneficial for women/equality while in actuality it only serves misogyny. Insecure, probably, to believe that they are unable to find themselves without the physical presence of a man, to tell and control them about their decisions, their life, their purpose, their philosophy, their career, their body. Naive, probably, to believe that the ONLY factor of a corroding marriage is because of shallow, “easy” reasons (in this case, the impossibility of 24/7 quickie sex) rather than deeper, more psychological and definitely scarier issues.
Are they so scared to think for themselves? Why is it that they prefer to force everyone, both men and women, into a two thousand year old stereotype (which is increasingly getting irrelevant) to define their role in society and act as if it’s the only acceptable way to function?
Reading whatever the OCW says in the newspaper always gives me a heart attack.
We totally need to show the club who’s boss, okay. >/
Oh gosh they actually showed Malaysia in the world map. This is definitely something major.
If you didn’t realized, the previous sentence was laced in sarcasm.
I grew up knowing this side of the country I live in but honestly this getting out of hand. It’s like what daisyloveletters said, it is infuriating that people are bent into believing that this shit is legit, and the wife is to be blamed for everything that goes wrong in a marriage, the guy? Well, according to what I’m seeing here, is treated like something wives (and women, as is implied,
or I’m just being to emotional about it) must worship like some deity and give ‘full obedience’ to.
PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY WOMEN. When you were kids and teenagers you don’t give half of the obedience you should be giving to your own parents. What right do these people have to demand your full obedience to a man whose loyalties to you aren’t even questioned, fully aware of the fact that he would be blame free in any situation and the blame would fall on you tenfold regardless of whether you did anything wrong or not.
Now it’s shit like this that made my family stop our newspaper subscription and turn to the internet for crap that matters instead.
And it saddens me more that they ‘target’ intelligent women and turn them into submissive, disillusioned and misguided
If these women are ‘okay’ with this sort of marriage, that’s just bullshit. No one, and I mean no one is that altruistic enough to accept this, bearing in mind that women are the more emotional gender. Like what one of the women in the video said, feelings such as jealousy and hatred exists, and the want to be loved and be the only one loved by their loved one is a constant factor, whether they choose to be aware of it or not.
How is this a harmonious marriage I will never understand.
